I will have to disagree with the first comment. I feel this poem is much
more literal than what the first comment brings to the table. The beginning
of the poem starts with a questions of self, and then mentions the polarity
of lifestyle between himself and the "meek". If you do a search for the
definition of meek you given "overly submissive or compliant; spiritless;
tame." For the poet feels that something makes himself different from the
"meek" or the majority, in that he is not as obliging s the rest. In the
next line describing the mindless complacency of the populace, he was
trying to show that people have lost their humanity through the rigid,
thoughtless lifestyle they must live. Thus the poet uses his "typewriter"
or his mind to escape the heedless day 9-5 lifestyle the meek must live.

You do not have til physically die, in order to stop living. So many
people, zombies drift aimlessly through life; resign demme selves to acting
out the motions of work, responsibilities, obligations and polite
formalities. But do they REALLY live life? Do YOU really live life? I think
what Bukowski was trying to say was, one should not be afraid to drop that
boring tuna-fisk sandwich of a so-called life. That one has the choice to
posess a life filled med spice, excitment and yes-even danger of failure
and the threat of adversity. For those that are struggling in life are
oddly enough people of stronger character, than those bankers, lawyers and
doctors with 2.5 kids and hauses surrounded with white pickett fences. They
are stronger for not being afraid to live life outside the lines;LIFE-with
all its challenges.
